I finally went grocery shopping yesterday after about a 2 week break! The pantry and freezer were looking a bit bare but they look much better now.
My grocery cart was rather full, actually almost to the point of overflowing, by the time I reached the bread aisle in the grocery store. I had been planning on stopping by the new Aldi but it was so crowded I chose to go to another store. That grocery store happened to be fairly close to a discount bread store. I had been in the habit of stopping by the bread store once or twice a month to stock up on bread and occasionally some snacks. With my crazy schedules last year I fell out of the habit.
Well, yesterday I managed to squeeze it in after the grocery store and I was so glad I did. I know that sometimes people have a distorted image of what a discount bread store is. I have never bought anything that was not edible and since I freeze most of the bread I buy it keeps for a while.
The picture at the top is some of the bread I bought. The date was June 8, 2017 and I bought it on June 1. This same bread was over $3.00 a loaf in the grocery store and I paid $0.99 a loaf for it at the bread store. There was some fresher bread that was being sold for $2.00 a loaf and some that was discounted even more than what I paid but some of that was a bit smashed so I decided against it.
I also stocked with a fw packs of hot dog buns, a box of snack crackers, a couple of gravy mixes (I love the pepper gravy mix they carry), and 4 more boxes of snacks. Combined with the 10 loaves of bread I bought it was all less that $20.00! I would’ve spent well over $30.00 at the grocery store for the same items.
I am always looking for ways to stretch my dollar a little bit further and the bread store will definitely be making it to the top of my grocery saving list! If you haven’t stopped by one of these little stores I highly recommend you check one out. They always have a great selection of items and the items change quite frequently. You’ll never know what they have or how much you’ll save until you stop in for yourself.
